Shaping your eyebrows can be a daunting task. Our faces are not completely asymmetrical, but properly shaped eyebrows allow you to attain that symmetry. Furthermore, nice eyebrows can transform your overall appearance. This activity will consume some of your time if you are a beginner. Below we have outlined the steps to shaping your eyebrows at home.
Step 1: Gather All Your Tools and Find Some Natural Light
Good eyebrow shaping procedures require that you have all the necessary tools. You will need a brow pencil, stainless-steel tweezers, a spoolie brush, a pair of small brow scissors, a clear brow gel, and some cold cotton rounds.
Step 2: Wash Your Face
Cleaning the face removes any makeup and residue buildups from skincare products. The buildup makes it harder for tweezers to grip tiny brow hairs.
Step 3: Identify Your Natural Brow Shape.
You must start by pinpointing the three key parts of your eyebrow. Your eyebrow has the head, the section closest to your nose, the arch where your brow is the highest, and the tail region nearest to the outer corner of your eye. Mark those regions and use your nose as the origin, this builds the balance and the symmetry your eyebrows deserve. Place a thin pencil perpendicularly against your nose where it touches your brow and that will be your head. Use a micro liner to mark that point.
Then, move the pencil outwards like clock hands and stop at the outer edge of your iris. This will be where your brow will be the highest, mark that spot and move the pencil to the outer corner of your eye. The final region will be the tail and you will mark it too.Once you have completed marking the regions connect all of them with straight lines just above and below your brow. This will provide you an insight into the region that you will tweeze and which to leave alone. The hair outside the region are the ones you will tweeze; you should leave the ones inside the region.
Step 4: Tweeze With Care
Use your two hands to tweeze. Hold the skin firm with one and gently remove single hair at a time by tweezing in the direction of growth. Tweezing in the direction of growth protects the follicle so the hair will grow back. Cool the regions you have tweezed with cold cotton rounds.
Step 5: Trim Any Drifts With Scissors.
After tweezing, snip any pop-ups and uneven hair down to size. Then comb them upwards with the spoolie brush. Notice if there is any uneven hair and snip till evenness is achieved. Trim from a downward angle so that you do not obstruct your view of your eyebrow.
Step 6: Fill Them Up With a Pencil
After you are done marking and trimming, clean up the area, dust away any snippets of hair then fill any sparse spots with short hair-like strokes. Remember the natural eyebrow shape, thicker at the head and thinner at the tail. Use a sharp pencil to achieve the most natural-looking fill. After you have filled your brows, run a spoolie brush for a blended eyebrow and crisp edge.
